Can we dance tonight?

Hold me in the moonlight.

Under the stars,

into the cold,

grab me lover,

time to be bold.

Take me out

away from here.

Lie to me dear.

~

Don’t break my heart.

How did this start?

When did I fall?

So wary of your call,

the voice wrapped in illusion,

the source of my confusion.

Hold me tonight

in the moonlight.

Nothing to fear.

Lie to me dear.

~

Tell me you want me.

Tell me our love will be.

Tell me it’s going to be ok.

Tell me you feel this way.

Sing me into peace.

Bring me sweet release.

Dance with me tonight,

in the moonlight.

Nothing to fear.

Lie to me dear.

~

Hold me tight.

Whisper...

of how you care,

of what we dare,

of what is forbidden,

of what is hidden,

but grows in the darkness.

Tell me I’m being childish.

Nothing to fear.

Lie to me dear.

~

Hold me tonight

before dawn’s first light.

Let me feel you near,

before you disappear.

Dance with me tonight

in the pale moonlight.

For in the light of day,

your love will fade away.

Hold me in your arms.

Tell me there is no harm.

Nothing to fear.

Lie to me dear.

~

This one night hold me close

before to the sun exposed,

as we die tonight,

dancing in the moonlight.

Nothing to fear.

Lie to me dear.

~

This poem made me once again realized that emotions are fixed and experience in the same way by all. The difference lies in human reaction on emotions. Nice poem, voted UP. Though terrible to know you are going to die.

Martie ~ Thank you for reading and for your kind words. Yes, we do all feel fear and longing at some points and need reassurance. The thought of impending death is one that is terrible to us but I have to wonder why? We all know we are destined to die. Yet, it is always a shock.

Saleheensblog ~ your comment "love is where truth reigns and where lie wraps the cruel truths of life as if they weren't existed" is a beautiful poem in and of itself :). Thank you for sharing it.

I can't say anything. This is the most beautiful poem you have ever made. I can't control my body to move and dance following the music you gave to me. Do you want to dance with me? although for a while...please. Good work, my friend. Vote and vote Up.

Dance poetvix! Dance in that moonlight, under those stars bright. Take a hand with a heavenly band. Hold another like no other. Love as the love will allow, and keep that fire and love, somehow!

hi Vix:

Ease my fright in the pale moonlight

Tell me sweet lies I need to hear;

Hold me tightly out of fear's sight

Dance with me, moon shine, hold me near.

Vix, your words, images and poetry dance across my mind's eye and inspire my own yearning for life as I embrace inevitable death. You have a vivid and beautiful mind. Be well.

Beautiful and profound poem. Taking risks in life to extend the sensations of blissful love and making it last-even if it may be their last dance! Love it! Wonderful job!

for we all need

to be held under the moon.

Nice poem of desire but possibly only imagined love. This might be a good one to attach the video for "Imaginary Lover". Rated it up and beautiful. WB

What a delightful dance under the pale moonlight, two lovers of the night wrapped in passion, kiss and the bite of love. Embracing before the moment vanishes and they must depart before daylight,yet knowing they will meet again under the pale moonlight with bated breath. I rated this poem up deservedly so.

......you are definitely one of my favorite dance partners here at the hub - in our styles and the subjects in which we both write I would say you and I are kindred spirits in many ways - so 'dancing' with you would be seamless, smooth, fluid and the choreography in sync!!!!!!

Shruti Sheshadri - Oh wow, thank you for being so kind. It really is enticing as evidenced by the massive sales of the genre be in in print or film. Funny how in real life it seldom if ever turns out as it does in such tales, yet we all still go chasing after it. You know what they say. Love makes the world go round. Blessings and happy hubbing!
